While reading a recent blog for turning an ironing board around to press fabric, I had an idea for a wider, squared off ironing board that could be left up in my sewing room. Why not cut a piece of pressed board to the desired size and bolt it onto a metal ironing board. Pad it with cotton batting, several layers and cover with any kind of 100% cotton fabric you want. A $40 board for just pennies. I will let you know how this all worked out. Thank heavens for ideas and DH to do the cutting.
Look what I found at a Garage Sale. I don't know anything about the old Singer Machines. So if anyone could help me out on this I would appreciate it. The serial number on the machine is AE060247. I do know that it was manufactured somewhere around 1935. I also believe this is the original cabinet. I am missing the cord, but the gentleman I purchased it from is still looking for it.

I was planning to make all the graduating neighbor kids quilts for their graduation. I made one this year and others in the future, but when my son got a card from two of the neighbors, they just put $5.00 in for him. Is it worth it to reward their children when the neighbors aren't as giving?? Should I just make a quilt for my graduating child and give the neighbors $5? Opinions please?

I used a tutorial found here: http://crazymomquilts.blogspot.com/2...vin-on-up.html
It was a quick and easy assembly. I quilted it on my Juki using my walking foot to create some straight line

My son came into a PFAFF 332-6. I have been using a 38 year old Montgomery Wards sewing machine and found the PFAFF to be a beautiful piece of engineering.
Since it is a 1950's model, does anyone have a breakdown of the various PFAFF's (built in Germany) model numbers and features, starting wtih the 332?
What is the difference between the Hobby and Tipmatic machines?
Is there some definitive source to find answers to these and other questions?
